52 CCT #23 and Welcome to two new Members

Wow - I have two new members - so nice to see you two! I am glad to see my membership growing, even without the lure of a blog candy.... Ladies, you made my day!

I want to welcome 


Caroline - sorry I can't find a link, but I will happily add it, if you let me know :)

I have a welcome picture for you:

It is showing glass art by Dale Chihuly, an American glass artist, who did an exhibit in the Bronx Botanic Garden in 2006. This foto is taken at dusk, there was a light rain and the colors were just amazing, with pink clouds reflecting in the lily pond and the glass among the lotus seedpods. I was so fascinated by this exhibit I went there three times. So have plenty of pictures to share....Perhaps I'll show you some more some other time - I guess more members need to join ;)


I have not played with 52 CCT in a while - there are just too many challenges out there, impossible to play them all. But I am still in full Christmas mode, so I was checking out Christmas challenges and this one just appealed to me with its clean inspiration picture:

I pulled out my Mama Elephant Winter Wonderland set, did some generational stamping and also stamped on vellum toget the birch trees in different shades. The deer are stamped on the card stock, but overlaid with vellum, to make them look like they are further away. 

Kim from Art Keeps Me Sane inspired me with THIS card, where she also used vellum to stamp and amazing tree scene.

The sentiment is Mama Elephant - Merry Greetings. I used an EK success border punch, some Stickles and a seam binding bow.

I hope you like it - I wanted to thank you about all your comments and your time to visit. I have not done this in a while, which doesn't mean I am not grateful. Thank you again and enjoy your evening!

Please stop by tomorrow for the Canine Cancer Awareness blog hop.

WoW! Fantastic monochrome card! Love the way you have used the vellum to give different shades, create perspective and add a touch of 'magic'!. Thanks for playing along with the colour challenge at 52 CCT
